The food

A chocolate shake. $7.50.

 

The space

Housed on the main floor of the historic Dineen Building, Planta Burger takes many of the same design elements as its Yorkville sister restaurant (in other words, it’s pretty good-looking for a burger joint). The dine-in space seats 14, and there’s room for another 25 guests on the patio.
